Sleep
Apnea

If you suffer from chronic snoring or Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), oral appliance therapy may be a more comfortable and effective treatment option than CPAP or surgery. By fitting you with a simple oral appliance that supports the jaw in a forward position and maintains an open upper airway, Dr. Kim might be able to help you sleep better at night.

Sleep Apnea for Individuals

There are three types of sleep apnea: obstructive, central, and mixed. Of the three, obstructive sleep apnea, often called OSA for short, is the most common. Despite the difference in the root cause of each type, in all three, people with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer. In most cases the sleeper is unaware of these breath stoppages because they don’t trigger a full awakening.
